Eddie Rickenbacker's, an eccentric saloon 
in the Financial District of San Francisco 
(SoMa), epitomizes the spirit a city known 
for its quirky characters and strident 
individualism. 

Opened in 1987 by Norman Jay Hobday (a.k.a. Henry Africa, due to his 
eponymous previous bar, also in San Francisco), it quickly became a place 
of San Franciscan lore. Among the superb collection of seven magnificent 
Tiffany lamps stationed behind the bar (lined up among the tumblers and 
martini passes, die lamps had military caps serving as toppers and were 
chained together with padlocks) vintage motorcycles hang from the ceiling 
interspersed with Venetian glass chandeliers and model trains circling die 
perimeter from above. 

Rickenbacker's was not Hobday's first foray into the San Francisco bar 
scene. In 1970 he and his brother opened Henry Africa's, and in no time 
it became not only a San Francisco institution but a new type of venue, 
adopted by bars across the country. More upscale than many barrooms, 
it was here that Hobday pioneered the concept of the "fern bar," which 
catered to young professionals looking for mixed drinks in genteel 
surroundings. Touted also as the birthplace of the Lemon Drop martini, 
Henry Africa's prospered throughout the '70s and into the '80s, and few in 
San Francisco during those years did not venture in to its bustling environs. 
After Africa's closed in 1986, Hobday quickly opened a new tavern on 
Second Street, Eddie Rickenbacker's, named for the World War 1 flying ace, 
which continued the legacy of Henry Africa's but, with its oudandish decor, 
also created its own unique niche in the panoply of San Francisco taverns.

Raised in an impoverished family, on what he 
described as a 'dirt' farm near Buffalo, NY, Hobday 
was an iconoclast and a consummate inventor; not 
only did he create the Lemon Drop and the fern 
bar, but he reinvented his own persona — renaming 
himself Henry Africa after his own bar where he 
dressed in uniform and frequently spun yarns to 
entertain. At Rickenbacker's, where Hobday literally 
lived with Higgins, a portly orange tabby cat he 
rescued after Hurricane Katrina, he could often 
be seen in glasses widi only one lens drinking gin 
martinis (before noon) served by a bartender named 
"Perky." Rickenbacker's, as Africa's before it, is 
the product of Hobday's non-conformist, fertile 
imagination, which included a penchant for Tiffany 
lamps selected with an extraordinarily keen eye. 



The colorful floral lamps, diat include superb 
examples of the 'Wisteria' and 'Laburnum' models, 
with their domed forms and intense hues, were a 
starding but intriguing contrast with the rest of the 
decor at Rickenbacker's. An inveterate collector, 
starting his Tiffany collection with the 'Daffodil,' 
Hobday thoughtfully acquired each subsequent 
lamp, taking great joy in the hunt as well as in the 
fantastical creation of Eddie Rickenbacker's, With 
a distinct atmosphere which has been the essence 
of a particularly exciting milieu of San Francisco, 
Rickenbacker's imminent closure will certainly mark 
the end of an era.

Important Notices and Explanation of 
Cataloguing Practice 



IMPORTANT NOTICES 

CHRISTIE'S INTEREST IN PROPERTY 
CONSIGNED FOR AUCTION 
From time to time, Christie's may offer a lot which 
it owns in whole or m part. Such property is 
identified in the catalogue with the symbol A next to 
its lot number. 

On occasion, Christie's has a direct financial 
interest in lots consigned far sale, which may 
include guaranteeing a minimum price or making 
an advance to the consignor that is secured solely 
by consigned property. Such property is identified 
in the catalogue with the symbol * next to the lot 
number. This symbol will be used both in cases 
where Christie's holds the financial interest on its 
own. and in cases where Christie's has financed all 
or part of such interest through third parties. When 
a third party agrees to finance all or pan of Christie's 
interest in a lot, it takes on all or part of the risk of 
the lot not being sold, and will be remunerated in 
exchange for accepting this risk. The third party 
may a&o bid for the lot. Where it docs so, and is the 
successful bidder, the remuneration may be netted 
against the final purchase price. If the lot is not sold, 
the third party may incur a loss_ Where Christie's 
has an owneiship or financial interest in every Lot in 
the catalogue, Christie's will not designate each lot 
with a symbol, but will state its interest at the front 
of the catalogue. 

In this catalogue, if property has © ♦ next to the lot 
number, Christie's guarantee of a minimum price 
has been fully financed through third parties. 

ALL DIMENSIONS ARE APPROXIMATE 

CONDITION REPORTS 

Christie's catalogues include references to condition 
only in descriptions of multiple woifcs (such as 
prints, books and wine). Please contact the Specialist 
Department for a condition report on a particular 

lor. 

Condition reports arc provided as a service to 
interested clients. Prospective buyers should note 
that descriptions of property are not warranties and 
that each lot is sold "as is." 



PROPERTY INCORPORATING MATERIALS 
FROM ENDANGERED AND OTHER 
PROTECTED SPECIES 
Property made of or incorporating (irrespective 
of percentage) endangered and other protected 
species of wildlife are marked with the symbol ™ 
in the catalogue. Such material includes, among 
other things, ivory, tortoises he 11, crocodile skin, 
rhinoceros horn , what bone and certain species of 
coral, together with Brazilian rosewood. Prospective 
purchaser are advised that several countries prohibit 
altogether the importation of property containing 
such materials, and that other countries require a 
permit (e.g., a CITES permit) from the relevant 
regulatory agencies in the countries of exportation 
as well as importation. Accordingly, clients should 
familiarize themselves with the relevant customs laws 
and regulations prior to bidding on any property 
with wildlife material if they intend to import 
the property into anothercountry. For example, 
the U.S. generally prohibits the importation of 
articles containing species that it has designated as 
endangered or threatened if those articles are less 
than looyearsold. 

Please note that it is the client" s responsibility 
to determine and satisfy the requirements of 
any applicable laws or regulations applying to 
the export or import of property containing 
endangered and other protected wildlife 
material. The inability of a client to export 
or import property containing endangered 
and other protected wildlife material is not 
a basis for cancellation or rescission of the 
sale. Please note also that lots containing 
potentially regulated wildlife material are 
marked as a convenience Co our clients, 
but Christie's does uot accept liability for 
errors or for failing to mark lots containing 
protected or regulated species.

Conditions of Sale 



These Conditions of Safe and the Important Notices 
and Explanation of Cataloguing Practice contain all 
the terms on which Christie's and the seller contract 
with the buyer. They may be amended by posted 
notice? or oral announcements ma.de during the 
sale. By bidding at auction you agree to be bound 
by these terms. 

1. CHRISTIE'S AS AGENT 

Except as otherwise stated Christie* s acts asi agent for 
the seller. The contract for the sale of the property is 
therefore made between the seller and the buyer. 

2. BEFORE THE 5ALE 

(a) Examination of property 

Prospective buyers are strongly advised to examine 
personally any property in which they are interested, 
before the auction takes place. Condition reports 
arc usually available on request. Neither Christie's 
nor the seller provides any guarantee in relation to 
the nature of the property apart from the Limited 
Warranty in paragraph 6 below. The property k 
otherwise sold "as is." 

Our cataloguing practice is explained in the 
Important Notices and Explanation of Cataloguing 
Practice after the catalogue entries. All siatcments 
by us; in the catalogue entry for the property or in 
the condition report, or made orally or in writing 
elsewhere, are statements of opinion and arc not to 
be relied on as statements offset. Such statements 
do not constitute a representation, warranty or 
assumption of liability by us of any kind. Preferences 
in the catalogue entry or the condition leportto 
damage or restoration are for guidance only and 
should be evaluated by personal inspection by the 
bidder or a knowledgeable representative. The 
absence of such a reference does not imply that an 
item is free from defects or restoration, nor does 
a reference to particular defects imply the absence 
of any others. Estimates of the selling price should 
not be relied on as a statement that this is the price 
at which the item will sell or its value for any other 
purpose. Except as set forth in paragraph 6 below, 
neithcT Christie's nor the seller is responsible in any- 
way far errors xndontGsions in the catalogue or any 
supplemental material. 

(c) Buyer's responsibility 
Except as stated in the Limited Warranty in 
paragraph 6 below, all property is sold "as is" 
without any representation or warranty of any kind 
by Christie 'a or the seller. Buyers arc responsible 
for satisfying themselves concerning the condition 
of the property and the matters referred to in the 
catalogue entry , 

3. AT THE SALE 

(a) Refusal of admission 

Christie's has the right, at our complete discretion, 
to refuse admission to the premises or participation 
in any auction and to reject any bid, 

(b) Registration before bidding 

Prospective buyers who wish to bid in the saleroom 
can register online in advance of the sale, or can 
come to the saleroom on the day of the sale, 
approximately 30 minutes before the start of the 
sale to register in person. A prospective buyer must 
complete and sign a registration form and provide 
identification before bidding. We may requite the 
production of bank or other financial references. 

(c) Bidding as principal 

When making a bid, a bidder is accepringpcrsonal 
liability to pay the purchase price, including the 



buyer's premium and all applicable taxes, plus 
all other applicable charges, unless it has been 
explicitly agreed in writing with Christie's before 
the commencement of the sale that the bidder is 
acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party 
acceptable to Christie's, and that Christie's will only 
look to the principal for payment. 

(d) Absentee bids 

We will use reasonable efforts to carry out written 
bids delivered to us prior to the sale for the 
convenience of clients who are not present at the 
auction in person, by an agent or by telephone. Bids 
must be placed in the currency of the place of the 
sale. Please refer to the catalogue for the Absentee 
Bids Form. If we receive written bids on a particular 
lot for identical amounts, andat the auction these 
arc the highest bids on the lot, it will be sold to 
the person whose written bid was received and 
accepted first. Execution of written bids is a tree 
service undertaken subject to other commitments 
at the time of the sale and we dp not accept liability 
for failing to execute a written bid orforenors and 
amissions in connection with it. 

(e) Telephone bids 

Telephone bids will be accepted for lots with low- 
end estimates of Si ..JOO and above, no later than 24 
hours prior to the sale and only if the capacity of our 
pool of staff phone bidders allows. Arrangements to 
bid in languages other than English must be made 
well in advance of the sale date. 
Telephone bids may be recorded. By bidding on 
the telephone, prospective purchasers consent to the 
recording of their conversations. 
Christie's offers all absentee and telephone bidding 
services as a convenience to our clients, but will not 
be responsible for errors or failures to execute bids. 

(f) Currency converter 

At some auctionsa currency converter maybe 
operated. Errors may occur in the operation of the 
currency convener and we do not accept Liability to 
bidders who follow the currency convener rather 
than the actual bidding in the saleroom. 

(g) Video or digital images 

At some auctionsthere maybe avideo or digital 
screen. Errors may occur in its operation and in the 
quality of the image and we do not accept liability 
for such errors. 

(h) Reserves 

Unless otherwise indicated, all lots arc offered 
subject to a reserve, which Is the confidential 
minimum price below which the lot will not be 
sold. The reserve will not exceed the low estimate 
printed in the catalogue. If any lots are not subject 
to a reserve, they will be identified with the symbol 
• next to the lot number. The auctioneer may- 
open the bidding on any lot below the reserve by 
placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer 
may continue to bid on behalf of the seller up 
to the amount of the reserve, either by placing 
consecutive bids prby placing bids in response to 
other bidders. With respect to lots that are offered 
without reserve, unless there are already competing 
bids, the auctioneer, in his or her discretion, will 
generally open the bidding at 50% of the low prc- 
sale estimate for the lot. In the absence of a bid at 
that level, the auctioneer will proceed backwards at 
hr. or her discretion until a bid is recognized, and 
then continue up from that amount. Absentee bids 
will, in the absence of a higher b:d ; be executed at 
approximately 5.0% of the low pre-salc estimate ot at 
the amount of the bid if it is less than 50^ of the low 
pre-sale estimate. In the event that there isno bid on 



a lot, the auctioneer may deem such lot unsold. 

(i) Auctioneer's discretion 

The auctioneer has the right at his absolute and sole 
discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding 
in such a manner as he may decide, to withdraw or 
divide any lot, to combine any two or more lots and, 
in the case of error or dispute, and whether during 
or after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, 
to continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to 
reoffcr and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute 
arises after the sale, our sale record is conclusive. 

(j) Successful bid and passing at risk 
Subject to the auctioneer's discretion , the highest 
bidder accepted by the auctioneer will be the buyer 
andthe striking of his hammer marks the acceptance 
of the highest bid and the conclusion of a contract 
for sale between the seller and the buyer. Risk and 
responsibility for the lot (includingframes or gjass 
where relevant) passes to the buyer at the expiration 
of seven calendar days from the date of the sale or on 
collection by the buyer if earlier.
